Again, congrats to the four winners, all excellent shots. My vote went to Jimmy's 'Wey Eyemouth'. Beautiful movement in the clouds and beautiful colours. I really loved the other seascapes by pea and dan, but the colours in Jimmy's shot just swung it for me.
dan123's 'The Ledges' - Strong composition, nice leading line taking you into the photo. Nice 'silky' water effect and good movement in the clouds. My only crit would be the large amount of seaweed/rock in the lower half of the photo. Seems to dominate the shot just a little.
DD's 'Bridging The Gap' - nice composition, good capture of the car lights going over the bridge. Really like the starburst of light coming from the street lamps. Not sure whether it's a little dark in some places. But overall a nice shot.
Thanks for the crit dan and DD. You're right, there IS something missing. It's probably to do with creativity.
This was done as a last minute attempt to get something on the last day. My original plan was to take a long exposure of a moving carousel at the local fairground but when i got there it wasnt open due to bad weather, so I had to think of something else rather quickly. So I deserve all the points I got - 0. Must not leave it till the last minute. (i'll be writing this 100 times for punishment)
